SMART Habit Saturday

Welcome to another week of Smart Habit Saturday! Today's episode is brought to you by the letter R, the number 6, and contributions by viewers like you!

Ok, I might be just a little tired lol, plus if youhave a 2 year old you will understand that I have to watch more PBS shows than I care to remember. Also I am writing this when I should be in bed so my brain is no longer functioning, this is my subconcious talking to you.

Anyway, on to another oh so exciting update on my goals :) This week got off to a rough start, my kids were sick Sunday through Tuesday so I didn't get much done those days. Kinda hard with a fussy Baby who refuses to be put down. But the last 3 days I've done really well. Cleaning is starting to go a little better. I've been spending a bit less time on the computer so miraculously have more time for other things lol. Still no a habit, but doing ok. Dishes got done most days. Toddler's bed routine is pretty much a habit now too, usually only gets missed on nights like tonight when I get home from work and he's already passed out on the living room floor. My bedtime is still not going too great, but I'm going to work harder on that since next month I will need to be getting up at 7am every weekday to babysit. Crunches is a habit now too, the only one I didn't miss at all this week. The computer time thing is off and on, but I'm really trying. And laundry, well, got off to a bad start but now it's going really well. I only mark it as done if I actually get the load I start in the morning folded by bedtime.

Here's my Joe's Goals:

I will be taking off Toddler's bedtime routine and crunches since they are mostly habits now. I have been doing well keeping up with my other habits as well: reading scriptures, brushing teeth, and taking my vitamins are all still going strong.

My new habit for the week is going to be daily prayers. I'm usually good at getting my prayers in at night, but I want to work on praying when I wake up too. So I'm shooting for prayers twice a day.

#1- Clean 1/2hr a day
#2- Keep up with dishes
#3- Brush teeth once a day
#4- Read scriptures daily
#5- Toddler bedtime routine
#6- Bedtime 11:30pm
#7- 50 crunches a day
#8- Take vitamins every day
#9- No computer for 1hr after work, church, or Hubby gets home from work
#10- 1 load of laundry each morning, put away by bedtime
#11- Daily prayers, morning and night

Wow are you organized. A prayer definitely goes out to you.

Lara said...

Your habits always look so great! My morning prayer has made all the difference for feeling the spirit with me all day long. I don't know how I survived so long without it.

Good night!

It's hard to do much when you have sick kiddos. :( But really, you've done such a good despite that! Good luck with the morning prayers, I struggle with that too.

Montserrat said...

I struggle with this too. You'd think it would be so easy to roll out of bed onto the floor and while there on your knees say a little prayer. Instead I find myself saying one in my head as I go about my morning. How impersonal is that!

Kassie said...

How fun to take things off the list because they are now pretty much automatic! Good luck with your am prayers, I still can't seem to get that one down.

Andrea said...

You have some great goals there. Hope this week goes great for you.

Dawn said...
